Shannon’s international reputation for building the world’s finest semi-custom yachts is based on its ability to bring together the thousands of details necessary to create a beautiful yacht. Although each Shannon is a unique, personalized vessel, all models exhibit the common theme of quality through attention to detail.
The builders of Shannons know the requirements for making safe and enjoyable passages, whether on Long Island Sound or the Tasman Sea. They also know that to excel, a yacht must respond to the individual and personal requirements of its owner. As a result, Shannon builds only a limited number of yachts, each for a specific owner, with a broad range of layout and equipment choices. While not an inexpensive approach, particularly when compared to production boats, the Shannon emerges as an uncompromised, ultimate yacht, a fact confirmed by the extended length of individual ownership and consistently high resale value.
Shannons are world-renowned blue water sail and motor yachts that have logged over one million ocean miles, including an impressive list of circumnavigations and transoceanic passages. Every major harbor in the world has been visited by a Shannon and since 1975 our boatbuilding experience is an unbroken, evolutionary chain under the personal direction of Founder and President, Walter Schulz.
